Paper Abstract

Angle-to-area converters are a key topic of illumination design, and much work has been done in this area over the last 30 years. However, relatively little work exists in the literature in which these converters have been designed using optimization techniques. The present work takes a fresh look at some angle-to-area conversion problems using optimized, circularly and non-circularly symmetric surfaces.
